Pedestrians vs. Motor Traffic: No Contest

One of the most dangerous places in the world is the marked crosswalk. Every year hundreds of people are struck down as they make their way to the other side. Many of these victims are schoolchildren or older people. Too many drivers are simply ignoring the rights of individuals to cross the street.

At Sousa & Minogue, LLC, we can’t make pedestrian accident injuries go away. But we can obtain meaningful financial compensation for victims of negligence and surviving family members.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
